Live a healthy lifestyle. Take care of your body not because you feel an obligation to do so. Nourish your body not because your doctor told you to. Stay fit, but not for another person's satisfaction. Eat right today not because it's a fad, or a temporary lapse in habit. Start a new habit today.
Take care of your body because "our bodies are simply a support system for our senses... Our senses give our spirit a window into the physical universe."
Do it so you can truly live. Fine tune the balance of your physical self, so you may be better positioned to be receptive to life. More receptive to sounds, sights, experiences, energy, and opportunities. Free of fogginess, restlessness, fatigue, discomfort, self-hate, regret. Be agile, alert and attune to life. Remove obstructions from your senses so you can life in the present, the now, to the fullest.
"Yesterday's the past, tomorrow is the future, but today is a gift. That's why it's called the present"
- Albert Einstein.
Never mind what your mind may tell you what you can or cannot do. Start today. Live.
